The Southtown Cinema was one of the larger theatres on the south side of the Milwaukee area. Their largest theatre (of three) was capable of showing 70mm prints and was THE Milwaukee theatre to see the latest widescreen blockbuster. Famous films that played the Southtown’s large screen included 2001, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake (in full Sensurround!), Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Pink Floyd: The Wall, with 2001, Close Encounters and The Wall all showing in 70mm.
In the 1980s, the large theatre was twinned, making the theatre a four screen venue.
The theatre was razed in 2001 for a strip mall shopping center, notable as the home to the Milwaukee area’s first Krispy Kreme store.
